on foreign policy, they had a couple of ads ready to go and then put together a conference call with campaign officials and also madeleine albright, former secretary of state and they are saying he's erratic, unsteady, irresponsible, something the campaign was not as quick to do in the past but post-debate, a much more aggressive tone from the campaign. >> jim, you have been following governor romney for a long time. you talk about a smile he has on the campaign trail. have you seen a big difference in how he's been campaigning since the debate? >> absolutely. you know, one thing that we should touch on is in that pew research center poll, it shows an 18 point swing to mitt romney among women voters, and i think that may vindicate some of what people were observing at that debate last week, when a lot of people thought mitt romney was sort of moving to the middle in certain areas on bank regulation, on at least trying to do so on health care reform and on taxes, even though the obama campaign was accusing him of etch-a-sketching throughout that debate. that may have been a factor in why the w

"the new york times" editorial today, they got out overnight, says the following, virtually every time mr. romney spoke, he misrepresented the platform on which he and paul ryan are actually running. that's quite a statement. and a new york magazine jonathan challenged romney over his economic plan that seems to rely on some magical numbers and thinking, quote, so romney is a candidate of a 20%

of issues going on in foreign policy not the least of which is what happens september 11th, so depending on demographics if you watch the woman's talk show you had a certain glimpse of what happened and if you watch the sunday programs, you had a completely different glimpse, and of course if you listen to press conferences, you had a third iteration of what potentially happened. with the previous welcome can you tell me that foreign policy shoved its way to the shop of the list of the platform for the election and tell me the insights as to mitt romney in the pc road today in the journal. >> well, first of all, i think it is going to be a big issue in the campaign. i still think this week is going to be dominated by the economy, but you're seeing foreign policy and national security percolate up the ladder as far as what issues are going to matter in november, and here is why. obviously we can talk about the economy and what a mess it has been and that barack obama hasn't fulfilled his promises. we put that aside. then you look overseas and the atlantic toeocean and the promi obama made

, but we're hearing that jim lehrer may ask a question related to foreign policy, libya, syria. do you think -- is that something mitt romney wants to have that discussion now? do you think mitt romney feels there is some room there for him to make some -- >> hard to say what the campaign is thinking, but if you haven't made your case on the economy, sufficiently well, when the economy is in this terrible of shape, i would think distracting from that is probably not a good strategy. let's do too many things not well. i would stay focused on the economy tonight. >> i do think mitt romney can, and if given the chance, will, successfully prosecute the case that what we're seeing is a lack of leadership domestically and in forbes polieign policy as we. we had big headlines, turkey shooting at syria, syria sending shells into turkey. that's big news. i wouldn't be surprised if jim lehrer throws a foreign policy question in. >> if i'm in obama, i would say throw me in the briar patch. that's a strong point for him. i think, unfortunately, the door is now open in a way on foreign policy that
will continue to struggle to defend its position on these issues. >> some say that obama pose foreign-policy is diminishing. >> absolutely not. we will have that discussion. >> [indiscernible] >> it's going to be a close race. we have said that from the first day. we will go on campaigning with the next to debates. you saw mitt romney continuing to try to defend it himself on issues that have been problematic for him in the battleground states. >> who do you think won the debate? >> the president, clearly. talking on taxes, jobs, medicare, we are on the right side of those issues and mr. romney continues to be on the defense. romney was testy. >> they did not mention the 47%. >> that was not a deliberate decision from the romney campaign -- from the obama campaign not to mention that. what is important is you are sitting on your couch in denver or des moines or charlotte and listening to the clear difference between the two candidates and that's what you got tonight and that's what will be good for the president. >> [indiscernible] >> i think we have continued to lay out a clear vision on ho

. romney used a rally in denver to try out his foreign policy attacks. he also attacked president obama on the mandatory spending cuts that will kick into place at the beginning of the year if congress cannot come to some sort of agreement that will stop us from going over the so-called fiscal cliff. senate leaders are planning to use the post election session to hammer out some sort of deal to avoid the automatic tax increases. right now a bipartisan group is coming together to work on what would be a three-step process of reducing the deficit by $2 trillion. and in pennsylvania a judge has ruled against the state's voter id law for the time being. voters will not be stopped from casting a ballot. the judge said there is not enough time with five weeks to go for the number of people who need photo id and those who have already gotten it. we're back with more steph after the break. stay with us. election but they cannot steal democracy. what the current audience can expect from my show is the unexpected. >>stephanie miller challenges the system, now it's your turn. >>it'
, which i believe is focused on foreign policy. i just want the candidates to be asked about this. >> there's also, mika, a front page in the "new york times" that everybody ought to read saying u.s. abandoning hopes for taliban peace deal. just to go back to afghanistan. it says one of the expectations was that we could batter the taliban coming to the table to work out some kind of a deal. well, we all could've handed our government history books that would indicate over history that wasn't going to happen. so the idea that's a surprise that the taliban isn't going to suddenly sit down with us and work out a government and work alongside us should not come as a surprise to people, but apparently it is. now we walk away from that possibility. >> obviously afghanistan has a long history with the british, the soviets, everybody. and there's a famous saying, you can't want democracy for more than they want it for themselves. so we are not going to change the whole culture of afghanistan. it's not why we went there. we went to deal with al qaeda and terrorism and it became a nation-b
that in the context of all of it together and suggest the president has had perhaps a failed foreign policy agenda. >> go ahead, job. >> this is a domestic debate. they're going to have to do it in a way that doesn't clearly violate the focus of this debate, that's a difficult line to walk. >> they're talking economy. all the different chunks of the debate, 15 minutes, 15 minutes here and there, a lot having to do with the economy. and let's talk about the october jobs numbers, one of your october surprises. they will be released f ed four before november 6th. the big one that could be the big one, right, for both of you, for voters heading to the voting booths. >> that's right. you can set your watch to that one. just days before. if it is a bad jobs number, that's the last psychological impression the voters go to the ballot booth on tuesday will have on issue number one, the economy. >> margaret hoover, let's talk about your piece on cnn.com. you called it romney's best bet, be mr. fix it. you talk about something mitt romney is not talking about very much, romney care. let me quote you. even m
? >> well, medicare's going to be big, especially in the vice presidential. but foreign policy as well. that's where the obama administration's on the defensive about libya. but i think the entire obama team and the vice president are going to get a lot feistier here. i mean, the president made a decision not to get in romney's face a little bit more, stop him, disagree with him. he didn't bring up the 47%. he had a whole, you know, area to discuss the role of government, and he didn't talk about a philosophical divide. i think they are now going to go become a lot more aggressive because they see an aggressive challenger and it's not enough to do rope-a-dope and sit back and try to sit on a lead. so i think there's going to be a different thought process that goes on. >> zpsavannah, were you surpris we didn't hear the number 47? >> i was. as a matter of fact, an obama adviser told me earl yes today we're not going to play it safe, don't believe those stories we're playing not to lose. but i think that's what we saw the president doing. the other thing he needs to do is really it's the unfin

and they reverse that and bush left the debates with a lead. that's the model. >> foreign policy still a wild card, too. and even some polls on the economy, romney seems for be doing better on those. two points on the gwu poll today, right? and we'll get rasmussen -- >> i didn't see gw. i saw a "washington post" abc poll showed two points among likely voters nationally. >> in was two on gwu, too. politico was two points. rasmussen and gallup at 5 and rasmussen at 2. >> polls it show obama up 11 in swing states. that sounds high to me. but in any case, obama's ahead, romney has to change something. he has a chance to do it. >> all right, john harwood, thank you. >> today is the start of the fourth quarter. and joining us is teach stanley, chief economist for peerpont securities. the lead story is how trade is slowing around the world. all of europe's problems getting exported to the rest of the world. what do you think this means just in terms of the fourth quarter and maybe a look into next year? >> good morning, becky. well, i think right now the u.s. economy is really slow in part because of wha

on defense. the question, really, is it's got to be on issues of foreign policy and areas where he might get to do that. so interesting time for the president. and like i said, the hardest part about this and out of all the element os testify campaign, debates are the worst. it parolizes the campaign. it seizes up, particularly if you come out of the gate and do not have a good performance. it puts all the pressure on the president, puts pressure on the staff. so the next two weeks, not going to be fun in the obama camp but i would expect a sharper more offensive-minded debate. >> as you point out, you're dealing with an area where the headlines have not gone their way in the past month. dan, i loved having you on. we'll see you next time. >> good to see you. >> dan bartlett joining us from atlantic. ga gary cokaminsky. >> i'm here in the control room. i was watching like much of the viewers. meg whitman joined. a lot of people wondering why is the slot down again today? let me tell you. every time a ceo comes on the air there's anticipation that the ceo is going to say something to at least
